Have you ever gotten a pinch for not wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day? I’ve gotten more than I care to admit, and I’m not taking it lying down. I’ll never be without a bit of green on St. Patrick’s Day again and I’m betting that most people feel the same way. Expressing a little St. Patrick’s Day cheer isn’t too hard to do with a few green accessories. Unlike Halloween, you don’t need a full costume to do the day right.
There are a lot of ways to express the love of things Irish, or just a love of St. Patrick’s Day. Many people wear green hats, some people wear bright green ties. A guy in a business suit and a bright green St. Patrick’s Day tie looks like he has a great sense of humor. There are neckties and bow ties that are suitably gaudy for the day and go great with your normal work attire. There are also hat and beard combinations that are a perfect way to celebrate.
If you aren’t the bright green hat type, there are a lot of other ways to celebrate the holiday. There are St. Patrick’s Day face paints that make it easy to paint on a little green. If your face is painted with green shamrocks, does that mean you’re wearing green? If you want to err on the side of caution, you can paint a shamrock or two on your cheeks or forehead and pair that with a green hat or a pair of shamrock earrings.
If you want to be less obvious with your green, there are plenty of ways to do that as well. A pair of shamrock socks gives you some stealthy green. If someone asks if you’re wearing green, show them a quick peek of your sock. Ha! And they thought they had you. There are also little touches of green like green beads and green headbands that gave give you a little burst of color to keep the pinchers at bay. These small accessories are inexpensive and fun to wear, and you won’t be left out of the celebration.
When was the last time you were pinched on St. Patrick’s Day?
